County needs to repair Koloa Road
Highway 530, known as Koloa Road, is really an embarrassment to the County of Kauai and its citizens. It is full of potholes and patch work and feels like you’re on a roller coaster when you drive on it. Some of the holes are dangerous. This is a major road to some of the world’s best luxury hotels, and this is what the tourists get on their vacation. Like a Third World country. Highway 520 is almost as bad. Maybe if a councilmember had to travel that road, something would be done.
Oh well. Out of sight, out of mind.

Burnings create air pollution
In the Puhi area as darkness settles in, burnings are happening. With variable winds it’s happening above Kauai Community College or somewhere in Kipu.
Mostly it’s green waste and other times it’s garbage, plastics and tires. Green waste burning is through a permit and very limited, and garbage, plastics and tire burnings are not allowed.
All burnings create air pollution, but the garbage, plastics and tires burnings are very toxic and shouldn’t be happening.
Clean air should be breathed.
If anyone can put their finger on this and they care, call the police. The police are supposed to enforce this. If I can locate, I’ll call them.
Breathe clean air.
